Why Elvis'
Daughter Lisa
Marie Was
Nervous To See
The New Movie
Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of Elvis Presley, had a front-row seat to all of the tabloid stories, music reissues, parodies, and cameo appearances centered on her late father for virtually her entire life. Sadly, Elvis Presley died in 1977 at the age of 42, when Lisa Marie Presley was only 9 years old.
It's understandable then that the prospect of Baz Lurhamn’s new “Elvis” movie would make her nervous. Explaining her initial trepidation, she noted that previous fictional treatments of her famous father haven't always been to her satisfaction. She said, "In my life, it's been one disappointment after the other in terms of people portraying my father in various films.”
Although she did not go into detail on any of the actors who previously portrayed her father, this list includes names like Kurt Russell, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, and even Bruce Campbell. However, according to the King's daughter, the 2022 version of "Elvis" is different. She said, "At this point, I tell you this with all my heart, and it's the only reason that I'm here: It's been done right."
